Will Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 replace your laptop? Microsoft says it absolutely can – and it’s right. The Surface Pro 3, Microsoft’s newest tablet, is bigger and faster than earlier models and comes with better accessories. For Windows users, the Surface Pro 3 has only one important feature — it runs 100 percent of your Windows programs. Whether you need to run the full Office Suite, Adobe Creative Suite or Pro Tools, the Surface Pro 3 is up to the task. One of the best features of the Surface Pro 3 is its “pen,” which is far more than just a stylus. Clicking the top of the pen immediately brings you into Microsoft OneNote – even if the device is locked. So who is the Surface Pro 3 for? Students and professionals who really want to have the best of the tablet and laptop worlds. If the Surface Pro 3 sounds like a device made for you, two models are available now, with entry level and ultra-high-end models shipping at the beginning of August.
